BoostNBlend Review

Hey guys! I hope all is well with everybody 🙂

Today I want to do a review on BoostNBlend hair fibers

boostnblend4

You can buy them on Amazon for $48.98, here is the link for that:  https://www.amazon.com/BOOSTnBLEND-Medium-Concealer-Visible-Thinning/dp/B00P9QG874/ref=sr_1_3_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1467326247&sr=1-3

I picked the Medium Brown Shade even though my hair is a dark brown and it works great for me. I am in love with this product, absolutely in LOVE!!! And I’ll show you why as we go along. This is totally unbiased I wasnt paid or given anything for free I spent the $48.98 to get this and that is honestly the best thing I’ve spent money on in a loooooong time!

Some Background info I have PCOS and thinning hair if you dont know what PCOS is I did a post all about it so check that out here:   https://sarahacool.wordpress.com/2016/06/15/pcos-truths/

How it Works:

So first off you want clean hair that is dry to apply this to, I have used it on second day hair and it still works but for me I like to put it on after I shower once my hair has air dryed. I try not to use any heat on my hair because it is thining and is super fine texture so I dont want to damage it any further, but thats just me feel free to blow dry it if you normally do that. Here is me with clean dry hair with my normal part:boostnblend1

Horribe right? You can see through most of my hair and it looks somewhat like a comb-over but hey you work with what you have.

So now you start applying. How I do it is I part the hair diagonally and just sprinkle it onto the scalp, then keep going until ive done the entire crown. The back of the head is a bit harder because your doing it blind pretty much but you’ll get the hang of it. Then what I do is I gently lift my hair (with my fingers) from the roots just kinda fluffing it up to distribute the fibers a bit better.

So at this point you part your hair where you want it and the part will be dark from the fibers so I take a dry q-tip and run it down the part to get rid of those fibers. Then if you notice sections looking darker along the sides of your part you can use the same q-tip to lighten the darker areas.

Here is the finished product on me:

boostnblend2

Much better! And this was with no hair products other than the BoostNBlend if I had used a volumizing mousse I would have gotten better results because my hair wold have more body and wouldnt be so flat. But I try to avoid using products on my hair as often as possible to keep it healthy.

I rave about this product to everyone I know and I just love the confidence it gives me, if you have thinning hair you know that your self confidence take a a huge hit because as women (and men too) the first thing everyone sees is your hair. This product does NOT sweat off or down your face, I sweat a good amount and this does not go anywhere so no worries in that department.

I have really greasy hair normally, so 48 hours after showering my hair its like an oil slick gross I know but it is what it is! Using the BoostNBlend right after my hair has air dryed from the shower prevents that oil from building up. I can go 3 or 4 days easy without washing my hair when I use it, which is pretty normal I think for most women and that is a giant plus for me because I usually wash my hair every single day. Which is definitely not healthy for it because I’m stripping it every day! I still shower every day I just dont wash my hair 🙂

The day after you may have some spotting on your scalp basically just some darker areas or areas where you itched your head and some came off so you will want to add more the next day but I never have to “touch-up” my hair I just add it once a day and I’m good to go.

For anyone with allergies this is perfect for you. I am allergic to so many different things its a little crazy trying to keep track of all my allergies  but this gives me no issues.

I would definitely, and do, recommend this product to everyone who has thinning hair because it has been such a blessing in my life. So if your frustrated and losing your self confidence please give this a try because I so wish someone had recommended this to me a few years ago. It really has made my life so much more carefree, I’m not checking the mirror all the time making sure my hair isnt showing scalp. Because I know it isnt.

Pyramid Collection Review

I found this gorgeous skirt online at http://www.pyramidcollection.com, a site that I had never heard of before so when I ordered it i was a little wary of what I would receive.

The skirt I chose was Radiance Maxi Skirt:

It looks great in the picture right? For $39.99 It better be!

So I received it in the mail today and the tie dye is gorgeous just like in the picture however its incredibly thin fabric, it wont last long. And its see through! I tried it on and yeah you can see my underwear…..not the look I’m aiming for!  The size is accurate its elastic so it fits well its a tad short for me but I have long legs so its understandable and its got a foldover waist so its the perfect length if I don’t fold it over.

This isn’t a total fail, I mean I could wear a slip under it but who wants to have to do that? And the quality is less than desired I’m rough on my clothes so it wont last long however the tie dye print is really gorgeous and I plan on wearing it.

The shipping was prompt 🙂

Sabi Shake Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Sabi believes that people’s imperfections are what make them beautiful and that intelligently designed products can motivate us to embrace our vulnerabilities and feel happy about doing daily tasks that may have grown challenging or mundane. Sabi products marry vibrant design and superior performance to make the most humdrum chores – from organizing your weekly pill box to taking a bath, to taking a walk – simply more enjoyable. Their ambition: to make the everyday moments count, each and every day.

Sabi has a great selection of products from pill cutters to canes. Check them out here http://sabi.com/shop-all.html

Sabi sent me another product called Shake which is a flip-top pill box that dispenses one pill at a time.

Image

I love how discreet the box is just looking at you wouldn’t assume that it would be a pill dispenser.

Image

When I opened the lid there is a tray area and a white plug that I removed after filling the container with my Multivitamins.

Image

I closed the top and flipped it over

Image

then…Voila!!!

Image

One single pill is dispensed!!! Very cool! Not sure how it works but I LOVE it, no more fishing my fingers in huge pill bottles or pouring out a bunch and dropping some on the floor. I highly recommend this product the only downside, Im gonna need a few of them for all my different meds :’)

Sabi was awesome enough to let me do a review on their Daybox

Image

The Sabi Daybox is an extra-large weekly pill box with eight detachable day cases, each with three compartments.

Image

It opens easily, the lid is rubbery and easy to open and close

Image

I really like that it has all the days of the week plus one labeled “SABI”, I have pills that i use on occasion like heartburn medication or Migraine medicine that I have put in that section 🙂 I think that this is a great way to keep all your pills well organized and easily accessible. Also its nice that you can detach each day and take it with you if you have pills to take throughout the day. Very convenient!

Now I do have one big complain, when I removed the packaging the case unlocked/unlatched between Thursday and Friday and doesn’t latch securely like the other days of the week do.

Image

But other than that its a really great and useful product 🙂

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Pine Bros have been around for 140 years but to be honest I had never heard or seen any of their products before. When i was looking into the products ‘Softish’ had me very curious. I kinda expected it to be like a Gusher with nasty medicine flavor in the center, I’m not really sure why but thats just what i thought they would be. Well when i received the throat drops from Pine Bros. I was pleasantly surprised

Image

I was given 3 flavors Cherry, Natural Honey, and Licorice. I’m not a fan of black licorice so those are being reserved for my momma who adores black licorice.

I really like that they come in containers so that I can just throw it in my purse, otherwise when I’m not feeling well my purse is filled with throat drops just loose in my purse 😦

PART_1391469417235

I tried the cherry and honey and I like both flavors. They taste similar to the Halls Cherry and Honey flavors but I think they are better flavored because they aren’t nearly as medicinal-ly. But the best thing about these are the texture…..the closest thing i can relate these to would be a Swedish fish texture. They aren’t soft but more rubbery, which I know doesnt sound great but they are! I have to say that I really do prefer these to the other Brands of throat drops. If you haven’t tried these you should! Make a care package and include some of these for loved ones they will definitely appreciate it!!

Cook’n 11 Recipe Organizer Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

JUDY MITCHELL IS THE WINNER!!!!
I was lucky enough to be asked to give my honest opinions on Cook’n Recipe Organizer.Image

Now for those of you that don’t know every  detail about me (non stalkers lol) I have binders overflowing with recipes, some I use all the time and some I haven’t quite gotten around to testing out yet. So the idea of being recipe free was totally thrilling to me since currently I have no organization so I have to go through every recipe to find the ONE that I need, and for some reason that ONE recipe always ends up being way at the bottom of a pile 😦

Cook’n was created by DVO Enterprises founder Daniel V. Oaks Jr. Working out of a spare bedroom with one computer, little capital, and no connections Dan set out with the goal of creating quality software products to strengthen families. Cook’n has become the #1 bestselling recipe organizer with over 3 million copies sold!

I love how family centered DVO is, that being said I could go on and on but instead you can read all about their beliefs and history here: http://www.dvo.com/about.php

I’m not exactly super tech savvy or anything but downloading Cook’n was crazy easy which I LOVE!! It didn’t take forever it just took a couple minutes and then I started scanning my recipes in. Whats also nice is its pretty idiot proof because there are really awesome tutorials on Cook’n that show you how to do everything and they weren’t boring at all which is an accomplishment because most tutorials I cant even watch all the way through but i managed to watch them all!

This is an Overview of Cook’n 11: http://www.dvo.com/cookn-demonstration.php

Ok so now you know all about Cook’n and DVO I can let you guys know my thoughts and favorite features etc. First off I’m just going to be honest and say I have not found one thing to say as a con, and I have been trying to find one. The thing I like most about this software is how easily I can now locate my recipes! I really like that i can put all my pinterest recipes in Cook’n and I can download recipes from websites like the Food Network. It makes recipes so much more accessible to me and I’ve noticed that I’ve actually been cooking more and trying out more recipes then I normally would. My absolute favorite feature of cook’n is that it calculates the nutritional value of your meals which makes counting calories so much easier! Now most women are on or have been on a diet in there life and counting calories is harder when cooking from scratch which is of course the healthiest way to cook 🙂 I’m on weight watchers so for the longest time if I couldn’t figure out the calories fat and fiber in a meal then i wouldn’t eat it which made cooking boring!!! Who wants to cook the same things over and over :/ I have been having wayyy more fun in the kitchen and I highly recommend Cook’n I’ve already told so many people how awesome it is. And I’ve only had it for like 4 days!! If you like to cook then you will LOVE this!!!
